“Certainly Doctor, anything for my husband”, the woman replies.
The Dr. says, “Your husband is suffering from a very rare and severe disorder, combined with horrible stress. If you don’t do the following, he will die”.
“Each morning you must fix him a healthy hearty breakfast. You must be pleasant and make sure he is in good humor. For lunch make him a nutritious meal and for dinner prepare an especially nice meal for him. Don’t burden him with any chores, as he is probably had a hard day. Don’t discuss any of your problems with him, it will only make his stress worse.” The Dr. continues to say, “Do all of these things and he should continue to live a happy healthy life for 15 to 20 yrs”.
The wife takes all this into consideration and exits the Dr. office.
On the drive home, the husband asked the wife, “What did the doctor have to say to you ?”
She replies, “He said you’re going to die.”
